VIDEO: Gardai release footage of "suspicious" man in black who followed missing Trevor Deely

New digitally enhanced footage of missing Trevor Deely casts a dark shadow of his last sighting as a man dressed in black can be seen following the banker.

The new footage captures a male dressed in black acting suspiciously outside the rear entrance of Bank of Ireland, Asset Management Offices on Wilton Terrace, Dublin 2 between 3am and 3.34am, prior to Trevor Deely arriving.

The man steps out from the darkness and on to the footpath moments before Trevor reaches him, the individual then waits a moment before following Trevor to the back gate of Bank of Ireland, Asset Management where he briefly converses with him at 3.35am.

Trevor was last captured on CCTV passing the Bank of Ireland ATM machine on Haddington Road at approximately  04:14.21sec while a man in black, who gardai believe to be the same person who was  earlier acting suspiciously outside of Trevor’s place of work, can be seen passing the camera at 04:14.55sec, 34-seconds later.  

Gardaí believe that the man in black outside Trevor’s office is the same male that is seen passing the Bank of Ireland ATM on Haddington Road

Detective Superintendent Peter O’ Boyle of the Review Team at Pearse Street station said: "A complete review of the case has taken place and follow up investigations are now being carried out.

“We are placing particular emphasis on the new CCTV that captures a male who can only be described as acting suspiciously in the short period before Trevor enters the bank at 03.35am on the 8th of December 2000.

“Our first appeal is for this male if he recognises himself to come forward and secondly for anyone else to come forward who may recognise him to notify us through Crimestoppers on 1800 250025. 

I renew my appeal to the public if anyone has any information into the disappearance of Trevor Deely or details as to his whereabouts to come forward’’.
